Check that the banknote is genuine

Look, tilt, feel

Paper quality

The banknotes are printed on cotton paper, which feels different from ordinary paper. The cotton paper has been treated with a dirt-resistant coating, which gives it a smooth surface.

Raised print

The primary motif and a number of details on the front are printed in raised print, which can be felt.

Markings for the blind and visually impaired

There are raised lines printed along the short edges of the notes to enable the blind and the visually impaired to distinguish between the denominations. The higher the value, the more lines. On the 500-krone banknote, there are four groups of four lines, or 16 lines altogether.

Are you still unsure? There are even more security features to check.
